President Obama- No Shame in Mental Illness Video

Please take as moment to listen to the words of President Obama. I thank him from the bottom of my heart for these amazing words and hope to see some changes to the mental health system in America in the near future, they are much needed!

My favorite quotes from this video...

 "We know that recovery is possible, we know that help is available, yet as a society we often think about mental health differently than other forms of health"

"The brain's a body part too, we just know less about it. There should be no shame in discussing or seeking help for treatable illnesses that affect too many people that we love. We've got to get rid of that embarrassment, we've got to get rid of that stigma! Too many American's who strgle with mental health illnesses are still suffering in silence rather than seeking help."
